Dogs have been called “man’s best friend” and no matter how stereotypical the statement is, the emotion stands completely true. Well it wouldn’t be wrong to say that our canine friends have rightfully earned this title for themselves. They are indeed one of the most lovable and faithful companions a human can ever have. So if you own a dog or have ever lived with one, then you can totally relate to this. A dog is a very social animal and likes to bond with people and other fellow canines. Also, they’re great judges of character. Dogs are born with this innate ability to sense a threat well in advance. Time and again, we come across stories about the wonderful bond between dogs and their humans. But still they never cease to amaze us.This is the heartwarming story of a dog named Zozo whose love for his human master didn’t end with the death of his owner. This is a beautiful example of an unconditional love that remained uninfluenced by the circle of life.
This all started like any other story. A Turkish man brought home a week-old puppy and named him Zozo. The family was more than happy with the new addition to the family and eventually he became everybody’s favorite. All the people in the house were very fond of the canine.
Completely unexpected and highly unfortunate, the dog’s owner passed away on February 2014. Everyone in the house was hit with a wave of sorrow and devastation. But the dog, who couldn’t express his grief the way a human does, was way more than heartbroken.
Usually, it’s humans who have to prepare themselves for the loss of their beloved pets because they have a comparatively shorter life span. Animals don’t often have to worry about such tragic situations but when something like this happens, they are not always able to cope with it.
The death of his owner had caused irreparable damage to Zozo. He has been depressed for the past two years and hasn’t been able to cope with the loss despite the love he is getting from the rest of the family. Now the family is slowly beginning to understand Zozo’s suffering.
The owner’s son, Billow Ye, visits his father’s grave every day and takes the dog along. The time that Zozo spends at the grave is surely the most comforting time of his day. He quietly goes and lies on the top of the grave and lets his love for his owner flow in the form of tears.
According to the son, the dog is completely inconsolable at the grave. As the time to visit the grave comes, he gets so desperate to get close to his owner and feel his presence. It is his way of honoring his human friend and he does not skip visiting the grave, regardless of how the weather is.
The sight of the brokenhearted canine by his owner’s grave is very saddening. The love and dedication that Zozo shows is very inspiring. He is a living proof that love is not only defined by the physical presence. This love has garnered him all the more respect from the family.
The touching story of Zozo’s utmost love and devotion for his dead human owner can be seen in this VIDEO.
